Today I had a bit of a sweet tooth. After all this holiday baking, I wanted something sweet but wanted nothing to do with cookies, cake, and quick breads. I decided fruit was the way to go. I could have my sweet without the calories or extra guilt.
My children love almond butter and sliced apple sandwiches. It’s similar to a peanut butter and jelly, but doesn’t have all the sugar and calories from jam/jelly. This wrap is an adult’s version of that almond butter and apple sandwich. Loaded with fruit and honey, it satisfied my sweet tooth and made for a tasty lunch. Try it for yourself!
